Lonely Meghan Markle sends message to fans as she sobs with hair in towel

Bare-faced Meghan Markle breaks down in tears within the first few minutes of her new fly-on-the-wall Netflix docu-series.

It's a far cry from the usual ultra-glamorous Meghan fans may be used to seeing.

In the clip from the first episode, Meghan breaks down in tears as she says: "I just really want to get to the other side of all this. I don't really know what to say anymore.

"Unfortunately, in us standing for something, they are destroying us."

Body language Inbaal Honigman has suggested that the mum of two is "lonely" and wants to show "she is person just like us".

She told Daily Star: "In Meghan's self-filmed introduction, taken clearly on her phone in portrait aspect ratio, she's sitting on the floor cross legged, her face free of make up and her hair in a towel.

"She's hunched forward, picking at her thumbnails, looking down and taking lengthy pauses. At one point, she seems to be blinking back tears.

"The image of the hunched princess on the floor, glum of face and unadorned, is cutting a very lonely figure.

"She is demonstrating how unsupported she is feeling, and she's letting us have an intimate glimpse of her true self.

"Without her signature smoky eye and perfectly coiffed tresses, in jeans and a plain blue top, she's sending us the message that she a person just like us, and deserves support and empathy like everybody else."

The series opened with with the caption "This is a first-hand account of Harry and Megha's story" and specifies that "all the interviews were completed by August 2022" before the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
